We performed a comparison between Dell VPLEX and IBM Spectrum Virtualize based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about IBM, Dell Technologies, NetApp and others in Storage Management.
"Its mirroring capabilities allow for data to be mirrored across two different data centers, so if one center were to crash or fail, the other center could take over and keep everything running smoothly."
"The best feature of VPLEX storage is its ability to consolidate storage. It also provides the highest RPO and RTOs for replication technology. VPLEX enables application mobility."
"Mobility enables us to carry out an internal migration of data."
"Dell's technical support is awesome. We received instant support from EMC as long as we had an active contract."
"I like that it can virtualize more than three hundred storage providers."
"Compared to other storage vendors, the solution is quite convenient to use."
"VPLEX's engine-based architecture is complex, so the implementation is challenging and takes more time. It's also difficult to fix hardware issues. When an appliance fails, it takes Dell EMC a long time to fix it because spare parts are in short supply."
"There can be delays in getting performance reports."
"Dell VPLEX should improve its integration and user interface and be easier to configure."
"The initial setup is complex."
"The solution could have a better built-in performance monitor."
"I would like to see more baseline replication and integration with the operating system between Vmware and IBMI."
